Other media

Television

In the Teen Titans animated series, The H.I.V.E. Academy is an evil school/organization founded by its headmistress (voiced by Andrea Romano) and later taken over by Brother Blood, the main antagonist of the third season after Slade's apparent death in the "Aftershock" season two finale. There are strong indications that the Academy is actually a supervillain cult, but this is not made explicit; since Teen Titans tends to be focused at a younger audience, this angle seems to be underplayed in favor of the standard "evil organization" theme. It was infiltrated by Cyborg in the guise of Stone, a student who can become a rock being. The H.I.V.E. also includes a large staff of dark-skinned faculty, who wear similar cloaks to Raven, as well as a large number of armed H.I.V.E. Troopers (whose gold and black uniforms resemble that of Private H.I.V.E.). The Academy was destroyed after the defeat of Brother Blood, but some of the students formed their own independent supervillain group called the H.I.V.E. F.I.V.E. The H.I.V.E. students became allies to the Brotherhood of Evil.
